Hi Maja fans! Happy Monday!
Can you believe it’s December already? Time has really flown by this year and I can hardly believe Christmas is getting really close by now. This also means that it’s time to start making Christmas cards. It’s almost a tradition for me to start working on my Christmas cards way too late, so that in the end I have to make quite a lot of cards in very little time. But then it really helps if you can work with papers that you really like. For example, this year I’m having lots of fun working with the gorgeous new “Vintage Frost Basics” collection. I have made quite a couple of cards with it already and will show you one of them on the blog today.
For the base of my card I used two sheets of paper: “4th of December” and “12th of December”. I then started cutting out the grid pattern from the “16th of December” sheet. I layered a doily on top of it, which was cut out from the lovely pink “5th of December” paper. For the central part of my card I used several beautiful die-cuts from the “Christmas Die-Cuts” paper. I just love the fact that each Maja collection comes with a die-cut sheet like this one. These lovely die-cuts are especially very useful for cardmaking! I cut out the postcard, a tag and a postage stamp from this sheet. I also tucked in two cut out elements from the “Days of Christmas” sheet behind the tag and behind the postage stamp.
To finish off my card I added a resin holly berry, a die-cut swirl and two stars. I also decorated some of the details with liquid pearls.
